In the bible, it states that Kings and Rulers are not to drink alcohol because it impairs wisdom. It stipulates to distinguish the holy and the common, between the ritually clean and unclean people. (Leviticus 10:8-11) Proverbs 20:1 says that "wine makes you mean, beer makes you quarrelsome." So in my opinion, I'd rather not drink and keep my wisdom and temper pure! There are many different opinions in Christianity, some believe that it's alright to drink alcohol and some don't. We will all be judged for what we do as individuals, not by what others do.

Christianity does not outright say that drinking is wrong. In fact, at one point Jesus himself turned water into wine.

HOWEVER, the Bible does in many places, especially throughout proverbs, condemn drunkards and people who abuse alcohol. It seems fairly clear that although alcohol by itself is not inherently evil, the Bible does not condone the abuse or misuse of alcohol.

Hinduism does not promote drinking alcohol and it is frowned upon. However in India, America and the UK many hindu's do drink as it is not banned.
